With modern facilities, internationally designed golf courses, and an excellent infrastructure, Thailand has become a natural attraction for golfers. Golf has been played in Thailand for 100 years now, with matches reported at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club as early as 1905. The first recognized 18-hole course, Royal Hua Hin, was built by a Scottish engineer in 1924 in the aristocratic seaside resort of Hua Hin. Thailand now has more than 200 courses throughout the country and hosts many tournaments, including international renowned Honda LPGA and the Royal Trophy – Europe vs. Asia Golf Championship. With ease and extraordinary service, Thailand is a golfer’s paradise

What’s the best time to play?
Golf can be played in Thailand every day of the year. The cool and dry period from November to February is the best time of the year. The summer season, from March to June, is also a good time for playing golf and getting a suntan. During the rainy season, from July to October, downpour can be severe, but they rarely hold up a game for more than an hour or two. Golfers still enjoy their rounds during rainy season, as it is usually greener and cooler.
Where to play?
In Bangkok, there are several great courses around the city and its suburbs, mostly within an hour’s driving time. Some of these are rated the best in the country–so good that they are often chosen to host many international competitions, including the prestigious Johnny Walker Classic, Johnny Walker Super Tour, Asia Honda Classic, Volvo Masters Asia and the 13th Asian Games.
The popular seaside resorts of Pattaya, Hua Hin, Phuket and Samui have a good array of layouts, many with views of the ocean. If you prefer mountain scenery, the northern cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, Nakhon Ratchasima in the Northeast, and Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai in the West are excellent alternative.
